Hi world! We have less than a week til the fest, and have a few things to share. Big news! NYFSF was in the Wall Street Journal. Ta-da! Now for our next trick. Check out the calendar - it’s just a jpeg and the links are not live because we haven’t been able to find anyone who can manipulate html in tumblr and we are just musicians, we sure as he|_|_ don’t know how to do it. Do you? If so, email us at nyfunnysongs at gmail dot com, as we’re hiring a web guru. Still, you can see a lot of info on the calendar. To get tickets for any events, you can call 1-800-838-3006 or visit brownpapertickets.com, or come to our opening registration event Thursday 5/30 at Santos Party House at 6 PM for free treats, games, prizes, happy hour, chances to win free tickets and more.

A few exciting pieces of festival news!
The festival is coming up and FAST—Thursday, May 30th to Sunday, June 2, 2013. Please stay tuned for our schedule and line up which will be announced on Tuesday, April 30th, right here on this very website.
Our other exciting news is bittersweet. We raised $8k on Kickstarter in 30 days! Amazing! And it’s all thanks to YOU. Some of our biggest supporters are mentioned on the flyer above. Thank you so much for supporting our festival. The sad news is, after fees and festival costs, we still don’t have enough to pay Dr. Demento to come to NYC. It’s sad, right? But fear not, we still have 75+ awesome comedy musicians on the bill…and just WAIT ‘til you see what we DO have in store for you!
Looking for some great comedy music in the meantime?

We were in attendance of the Friar’s Club Roast of Jack Black a few weeks ago at the Hilton in NYC, and it was pretty spectacular. The star studded dais included Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, even Jerry Lewis! Roast master Bob Saget held it down as greats like Artie Lange, Jeffrey Ross and even Richard Marx (remember him?) paid their homage to wacky Jack.
The roast was great, but have you ever had a salad with a thin layer of cheese that covered the entire plate underneath it? Fantastic. As you can see, our sight lines weren’t the closest ever, but to be in the room was magical enough.
Performers in photos, l to r: Sarah Silverman, Amadeo Fusca, winner of the "So You Think You Can Roast" challenge, Jack Black finished every quip with “Roasted!” just like Michael’s roast scene in The Office episode that Jack Black was weirdly briefly featured in, the view from our table, Bob Saget, Gene Simmons, Amy Schumer and a comedian who sat at our table, Jim Norton and Jessica Delfino.
